fatigue at this point. debt ceiling versus fiscal cliff and now the sequester and as jonathan pointed out, the sequester cuts kind of a rolling cut. they don't really get this. i'll say the white house is probably in a better position messagingwise because what they can do right now and what they are doing right now is pointing to the individual cuts and that resonates with voters and people who are monitoring the news, being able to say, oh, meatpackers can't inspect meat or longer lines at the airport. the resonates with people and effective messaging on their part and republicans don't have that same luxury right now. >> does it resonate only with the people that agree with the president? you talk about, for example, not likely that the republicans in the reddest part of the country receiving calls of constituents. is this again another situation where it resonates? if that's what you believe and going back to the core of this, this huge gap in this country and in people elected to represent us on what should be done particularly when it comes to tax revenue, shira? >> well, i think th

of events with names like the debt ceiling deadline, the fiscal cliff, and the next one is barreling down the tracks. it is called the sequester, but it has nothing to do with a jury. and if it isn't stopped, if it's allowed to go through in ten days, huge automatic spending cuts go into effect. the president used some dire language to warn about it today. and tonight, nbc's john yang explains what this sequester is and the impact it could have for everyone. >> reporter: with no budget deal in sight and automatic spending cuts just days away, president obama said today it was the fault of congressional republicans. >> they haven't come together and done their jobs, and so as a consequence, we've got these automatic, brutal spending cuts. >> reporter: republicans blame the president. >> the president, back in the last session of congress, refused to cut spending in any place. >> reporter: they're fighting over a sequester. washington speak for the $1.2 trillion across-the-board spending cuts that would begin march 1st unless congress and the president agree on a deficit-cutting package. >>
